NHS Prototype Contracts

Working with two concepts (Blends), the Prototypes are the next step in the direction of travel for NHS Services as put forward in the ‘Securing Excellence in Dentistry’ and the ‘Five Year Forward View’

The new model will test that the reformed contract will achieve goals of improved access and oral health whilst being affordable. The Practices involved will be key to testing out practical issues (e.g. data transmission) prior to any National roll-out.  The clinical philosophy remains the same- the preventative pathway approach is at the heart of the programme.  Remuneration will be a balance of Capitation, Activity and DQOF.  In most cases, the dentist will be provided an annual sum divided by 12 to provide a monthly income.  Private treatment can be provided and generates an income in addition to the NHS.

Blend A

Capitation element: This will cover check-ups and preventive care (the Band 1 element of courses of treatment i.e. 1 UDA of Band 1, Band 2 and Band 3 courses of treatment) delivered to capitated patients. Urgent courses of treatment and charge exempt courses of treatment delivered to capitated patients will also be covered by the capitation element of the contract.

Activity element: This will cover all treatment (the Band 2 and Band 3 elements of courses of treatment) delivered to capitated patients. The activity element of the contract will also cover urgent care, treatment on referral and charge-exempt courses of treatment delivered to non-capitated patients.


Successful candidates will be GDC registered dentists, have an active dentist performer number and have experience of providing NHS dental treatment in the UK.

For further information regarding this dentist position, confidential enquiries can be made by submitting your CV to ZEST Dental.  All applications and enquiries will be treated in the strictest of confidence.
